This is the date in which the notarial act occurred.This is an extremely important entry in your journal.It is also good practice to enter the date that is on the document and how many pages the document was.
Or that doesn't know their full job or responsibilities? Do you not want a notary caring about your client, and knowing full well what they are doing at the signing table?
I certainly would hope not, but it is a shame so many are in fact out there wanting this done.
A permanent resident alien may apply and be appointed and shall file with his or her application a recorded Declaration of Domicile. The notice shall be of a conspicuous size, if in writing, and shall state: “I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, AND I MAY NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE OR ACCEPT FEES FOR LEGAL ADVICE.” If the advertisement is by radio or television, the statement may be modified but must include substantially the same message. A notary public may not notarize a signature on a document if the notary public has a financial interest in or is a party to the underlying transaction; however, a notary public who is an employee may notarize a signature for his or her employer, and this employment does not constitute a financial interest in the transaction nor make the notary a party to the transaction under this subsection as long as he or she does not receive a benefit other than his or her salary and the fee for services as a notary public authorized by law.
The residence required for appointment must be maintained throughout the term of appointment. A notary public may supervise the making of a photocopy of an original document and attest to the trueness of the copy, provided the document is neither a vital record in this state, another state, a territory of the United States, or another country, nor a public record, if a copy can be made by the custodian of the public record., and, to the best of my knowledge, that the photocopied document is neither a vital record nor a public record, certified copies of which are available from an official source other than a notary public. For purposes of this subsection, a notary public who is an attorney does not have a financial interest in and is not a party to the underlying transaction evidenced by a notarized document if he or she notarizes a signature on that document for a client for whom he or she serves as an attorney of record and he or she has no interest in the document other than the fee paid to him or her for legal services and the fee authorized by law for services as a notary public.
Notaries public shall be appointed for 4 years and shall use and exercise the office of notary public within the boundaries of this state. The following notarial certificates are sufficient for the purposes indicated, if completed with the information required by this chapter. A notarial act performed, a notarial certificate signed, or a notarial seal used by any notary public before January 1, 1995, which would have been valid under the laws in effect in this state on January 1, 1991, is valid.
An applicant must be able to read, write, and understand the English language. The specification of forms under this subsection does not preclude the use of other forms. NEVER notarize a document that is dated after the date you are performing the notarization.The date on the document and the date that the notarial act is taking place is the date that goes on your notarial certificate and in your notarial journal.That's why you can rely on the NNA to provide everything you need in just one place — bond, education and supplies.Order your supply package and complete your application to get started!There are NO loop-holes or exceptions on this one, what-so-ever. If you are a notary doing this, you either do not know what you are doing and what your responsibilities are as a notary, or you do not care.
